I stayed at this Hotel for 7 nights in July. The views for the reception balcony and from my bedroom also, were fabulous, especially in the evenings. The location of this hotel is one of its best features. It is just across the street from the main Bus Terminal in Taormina making excursions very easy. It is also just a... More

My husband and I stayed at the Grand Miramare Hotel in September. First of all I must reiterate what other reviewers have said in that the staff really make the hotel, all being so helpful and friendly and also, like many other reviewers, I would especially mention the pool attendant, who always greeted us and had our sunbeds and towels...

After having read a few reviews we were a little concerned as there had been a few negative remarks but we found the front desk to be very helpful. We had booked a front sea view room which when we arrived had been upgraded (by our daughter) to a front sea view with balcony. On entering the room we immediately... More

Very comfortable traditional hotel. Staff pleasant and helpful (especially if you engage with them). Food excellent. As other reviewers mention, close to the small bus station, where you can easily pick up trips to Mount Etna and Castelmola (picturesque village with stunning views) etc. Numerous steps down to the pool but that is more than compensated for by the fabulous...

This is an older hotel but generally does not look tired and seems to be in good repair. The reception area is fresh and the staff very helpful.There is a great view from the balcony outside the reception area. The room was comfortable and kept spotlessly clean with room service every day, the shower had good power and plenty of... More

+ Location cannot be better (bus stop just across the road) - Taormina center just 5-8mins uphill walk. Very clean hotel (reception always smelling amazing!!) and big rooms. The views are amazing.

We were very impressed with this hotel - view from our room was as shown. The pool was a long way down but lovely and the balcony allowed us to sit out and enjoy the view in fresh air. Hotel policy of not allowing you to store your own drinks and foodstuffs in their fridge annoyed us but we worked... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Grand Miramare. It is situated just across from the small bus station with an uphill walk into Taormina (10 minutes I guess). I find the criticisms of the hotel extraordinary. If you research the hotel you will have discovered the hotel is built on a cliff; as is Taormina & hence the superb views.... More

The location of the hotel is very good, opposite the bus station, just down the road from the cable cars, and about a ten minute walk to the centre of Taormina. The hotel itself lacked atmosphere and the personal touch. Our room was spacious, comfortable enough, kept clean,but the furniture was dated and the curtains badly creased. The balcony had... More

We had opted for a classic sea view room with balcony( room 301 )and were not disappointed. The balcony was huge at least 6 x 6 metres partially covered to protect you from the sun which was very hot at times.The sea views were superb, across the bay to the Italian coast, you could watch the cruise ships sail in...
